pups all growed up

we shall begin this post with the very first picture I took of my puppies, a little over a year ago, the first week of May 2012. Otis is on the left and Kali is on the right. They are from the same litter and Otis was the first born and Kali the runt. I […]

Loaded Gun found on Disney Ride

I realize that mistakes happen. I’ve dropped my keys in the parking lot while shuffling the baby from one arm to the other;  I’ve left an item or two in my shopping cart as I’ve loaded my trunk, only to have to drive all the way back to the store hoping the cart is where […]

Words from my mother

As I sat on the sofa this past Saturday morning  surrounded by my dogs, my handgun within reach, watching my 3 month old daughter happily dream away in her swing, my thoughts drifted to a conversation I had earlier this week with a friend who has a young daughter. It was a conversation about how […]

Government Sanctioned Bullies

LOOKOUT!! CALL THE AUTHORITIES QUICK!!! THERE ARE CHILDREN IN THE AIRPORT THAT ARE A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY!!!  A little 4 year old girl on her way home to Montana hugged her gramma (this link is from all the way across the pond) as gramma was being detained after she triggered an alarm at the security […]

Granny’s Dog

I’ve been wanting a puppy and haven’t been able to decide what kind I want. All I know is that it has to be black and brown.  There is a picture forming in my head and I have been having difficulty in figuring it out. I’ve always liked and gotten along with Rottweilers and Dobermans. […]

Annoying little sister

I have 2 older brothers. They both left for college before I was in 6th grade, so basically during my teenage years I was an only child. I did my best work in my younger years. They should thank me for being such a cool little sister who never ever ever annoyed them. Okay, okay…even […]

Picture worth a thousand words

I’m not sure who created this in order to give proper credit (I’m posting via my mobile & can’t make out the icon below the title); it was emailed to me by one of my oh-my-God-how-can-you-even-think-about-touching-a-firearm friends. Surprisingly…she’s a wee bit less snobbish seeing how people like her are portayed by someone who shoots. All […]

Jump Rope – Save a Heart

My 7-year old nephew called me out of the blue today. It turns out, he’s jumping rope at school to raise money “because of the hearts” which I translated into The American Heart Association. Which just happens to be close to my heart. Heh. His goal: $500.00 Here’s his pitch: (keep in mind, he’s developed […]

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

I spent the first day of 2012 at my friend’s house baking cookies. We baked a basic chocolate cookie, rolled and dipped in chopped nuts then finished off with a Hershey’s Kiss secured with basic confectionary icing. Sidenote: we quadrupled the recipe and didn’t have enough walnuts. We used walnuts, almonds and pecans. The dough has to chill […]

It’s not Christmas
